Explorar la relación entre la teoría prospectiva y el conflicto internacional: la disputa fronteriza entre Tailandia y Camboya como caso de estudio / Exploring the relationship between prospect theory and international conflict: the Thai-Cambodian border

Otto F. von Feigenblatt


El presente trabajo explora la relación entre teoría prospectiva y Conflictos Internacionales, concentrándose en conceptos fundamentales como el efecto de la dotación, la dependencia de referencia, y el encuadre. Teoría de las Perspectivas ha demostrado tener poder explicativo en el caso de la disputa histórica entre Tailandia y Camboya a través de su frontera compartida. La aparente falta de importancia estratégica del Templo en el conflicto, la ausencia de recursos naturales en el área disputada, y la intensidad relativa de que el conflicto no puede ser adecuadamente explicado por las teorías de la elección racional. Finalmente, el artículo concluye que la Teoría de la perspectiva muestra una mayor tracción explicativa de las teorías de la elección racional para explicar la intensidad y persistencia del conflicto en torno a las áreas controvertidas, en particular la tierra que rodea Preah Vihear Temple.
